Just for Pam!

I was talking with Pam at Classic Hobbies today and telling her about the Christmas tree I made using the Jenni Bowlin music pp and she told me I should post it on online. So, here it is. It was inspired by the Christmas trees featured on the front cover of the last Scrpbooks Etc. issue I got.

It's Christmas Time at Regal

I just got the Regal Christmas catalogue in the mail and I have to say I love the front cover. So Cute! I would have liked to seen a little bigger variety of Christmas cards in it, but that is my only complaint. There is a great assortment of items in it and more than a few are must haves for me. If you would like a copy of the catalogue leave me a comment and I will get one out to you. Or check it out online at my webstore.

They also have a new catalogue just for business owners who want to send personalized cards and/or gifts to their customers. And if you're looking for a fund raiser for your school, community group or sports team check out Regal's new fund raising flyer. Regal has taken the hassle out of organizing a fund raiser. They will provide your group with your own webstore and really all you need to do is pass out the catalogues. Too easy!

Great Resource for Cricut Users

I just discovered Cricut Search. Wow! You can type the name of the image you are looking for and it will show the Cricut cartridge(s) you can find it on as well as a preview of the Cricut cartridge page that the image appears on. I only have 3 cartridges at present and I see this as a great tool to help me figure out which cartridges I should buy next. For example type owl into Cricut Search and you will get 27 listings for owl images. Pretty cool!

What's New?

We are back to school and back to hockey. My son and daughter are the same level for hockey this year and I am looking forward to less travel. Not to mention I had to miss some of my daughter's games last year because I was managing my son's team and couldn't miss any of his. This year there will be no conflicts. Hurray!

I got my first Regal catalogue this week and they have a little bit of everything in there. They have even more items listed online and I got an adorable dolphin necklace for my daughter's birthday. She loves dolphins and her favourite colour is blue, so this is just perfect for her and at $9.98 it fits my budget nicely.

I was catching up on some of my favourite blogs tonight and I came across this giveaway on the Paper, Ink, Color! blog.

Is that not super yummy? And how generous of Chrissy to offer it up!

Regal Anyone?

With my DH still off work and hockey season coming up I need another source of income. So, I have taken the plunge and signed up to sell Regal. It has been a while since I have tried something like this and I'm a little nervous, but hopeful, that I can make a go of it. I have set up a Regal Webstore and now I just need to order some catalogues and get them out into the community. Wish me luck! (And check out my store too! LOL)

A Build-a-Layout Challenge With a Twist at Kindred Creations

It's the beginning of August and all the new challenges are being posted at Kindred Creations (KC). I really would like to see lots of participation in my challenge this month so I am doing a Build a Layout challenge with a twist. Instead of posting the 10 steps to build your layouts over 10 days, I am only going to post the 1st step. Then the first person to sign up to do the challenge will post the 2nd step. The next person will post the 3rd step and so on. I'm excited to see how creative we can get! There are 3 steps posted already so come on over and check it out.

Last month, once again, the only layout I got done was the one I did for layout tag at KC. It seems to be becoming a habit with me. One I am trying to break I might add. LOL You can see the reveal of everyone's layouts here. There was quite a transformation from start to finish. Here is the layout I did. (Sorry for the poor quality image.)


August's layout tag is just getting under way and we would love to have you join us.

An Apology, A New Job, A $35 Prize to be won at KC and A New Layout

I am so sorry for letting my blog slide for almost 2 months. I had such good intentions of posting regularly once hockey was done. Unfortunately I just haven't. One of the reasons I haven't been is I went back to work after 14 years as a wife and SAHM. It's really the perfect job as I work Monday to Friday 9am - 1pm at my children's school. No worries about conflicts with their schedules. I'm just filling in for a lady who took a leave of absence for now but is a nice way to ease back into the work force.

Kindred Creations (KC) is having it's May Basic Grey party May 20 & 21 and there is a $35 prize pack available to be won for the Bingo game. You don't have to be getting the Basic Grey kit to play, you just have to be a member of KC. There will be other games and prizes as well. Check it out here.

And lastly here is the layout I did for the May Layout Tag at KC. It is a rare layout where I am the subject. The pictures are from 1998 when my son was born.

March Layout Tag

I've actually gotten 3 layouts done this month including this one for the March Layout Tag at KC. It's amazing what I can get done now that hockey season is done. LOL I'm even planning on going to a local all day crop in a couple of weeks.

Bring Home The Cup

I'm going to ask you to vote again. LOL This time it is for my son's team in the Pepsi / Frito Lay 'Bring Home The Cup' contest. Our PeeWee team had 8 skaters and 1 goalie for most of the season after our 2nd goalie was out due to a concussion received at school. We were a small team, but that didn't stop them from winning the majority of their games and coming in 1st at the only tournament we were able to enter this year. These kids have shown a lot of heart and really deserve to win this contest. Not only have they played hard, most games we only had 1 or 2 spare forwards and 1 spare defenceman, but they have also played good clean hockey and shown great sportsmanship. I have been very proud to be their manager this year. Voting is open from March 22nd to April 17th and you can vote once every hour. Here is the link.

I've Been Voting!

For Lawrencetown for CBC Kraft Hockeyville. Between DD and I we have been voting close to 100 times a day. And I have to say I am so impressed with the Lawrencetown for Hockeyville 2010 Facebook page. They have over 1900 members already. Not bad for a tiny village. I even have my family voting in Ontario. Every little bit helps.

I Challenge You...

... to stop collecting scrapbooking products and start using them. I have been cleaning and reorganizing my scrap room and I realized I really need to spend more time creating and less time buying. So, my challenge at Kindred Creations this month is aimed at just that. Come on over and join us.

Here is the layout I did for the challenge. The patterned paper and the shaped paper are the newest items on there at 6-9 months old. Everything else is 1-5 years old including the picture which is from May 2006. LOL


And don't forget to vote for Lawrencetown for the CBC Kraft Hockeyville 2010.

Lawrencetown, NS is a CBC Kraft Hockeyville Finalist

How incredibly cool is it that the tiny community of Lawrencetown is a finalist in CBC Kraft Hockeyville 2010! The kids and I have been voting non-stop since the finalists were announced and we're really hoping they make the top 5. I have to say after watching the top 12 show on Monday that Lawrencetown best embodies the spirit of Kraft Hockeyville. It is a small town rink with a true need for upgrades to bring it into the 21st century. I hope everyone votes and votes often for Lawrencetown. You can do that here at the CBC Kraft Hockeyville site. Also join the Lawrencetown for Hocketville 2010 Facebook group.

I Completely Missed February!

I can't believe I didn't post once in February. It was a crazy busy hockey month. Between my son and daughter's teams we had 4-7 games most weekends. The biggest excitement was my son's PeeWee team winning the Berwick tournament. We only have 9 players including the goalie, so it was pretty amazing.

As usual I only got 1 layout done and it was my layout for February layout tag over at Kindred Creations. This time I did a digital layout.

Kindred Creations Layout Tag

I can always count on the layout tag at Kindred Creations to ensure I get at least one layout done a month. It is so much fun to see the changes from the 1st inspirational layout to the final lifted layout. This is the layout I did for this months tag. I used my new Storybook Cricut cartridge to make the background swirl.

A New Layout

I can't believe this is my first post of 2010. We have been super busy with hockey. As tournament coordinator, this weekend will be my 3rd tournament in 6 weeks plus my kids have had 4-5 games a weekend for the last 2-3 weeks. As a result my scrappy time has been severely limited. I did manage to get a layout done to submit to the recent PageMaps call. It wasn't accepted, so I can post it here.
